Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance Process

If financial assistance is needed, families are required to complete the Financial Aid Application. Families of returning students should wait until January and submit their most recent tax documents. Families of 8th grade students (incoming freshman) are encouraged to fill out the Financial Aid Application as soon as possible using their prior year tax documents. FACTS analyzes the family’s size, income, assets, and the state and/or metropolitan area where the family resides to determine how much tuition the family can pay. FACTS processes this information, then sends a report to Peoria Notre Dame High School listing the families in order of need. Using this information, Notre Dame determines the amount of assistance for each family. Families will be notified as soon as the awards are finalized. Note: All Grant and Aid applications must be in complete status, with all required documents verified, for a family to qualify for any assistance. FACTS charges a $35 application processing fee.
